I might add it did this even tho a rott and dobe are on the premisis. We don't mind if the fox, hawk or owl kill one..that's just nature, but this thing didn't even eat it or alert the dogs..any ideas? I have 4 acres of woods on a lake up north if that helps.

Thanks a bunch..guess it's time for him to go to racoon heaven:D We don't need permits out here. Anything in my yard can be disposed of as I see fit. We're lucky that way. Now if I can push the girls off the front door and tell them it's
